Amanda and Zac Apex, NC Film Wedding

Amanda and Zac Apex, NC Film Wedding
I love the way that The Oaks at Salem feels - comfortable and intimate, yet elegant. I love that all the events of a wedding day can happen so close together, while feeling like it could be multiple different locations - a countryside ceremony with an outdoor tented reception with dreamy market lights.

2016 Print Features

2016 Print Features
There is something so special about the tangibility of a print feature. I love to think of a bride-to-be cozied up on her couch with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate flipping through a wedding magazine, looking for inspiration for her own wedding.
